Passed away July 10, 2022. Beloved mother of Gary (Clarisse), Alan and Daniel (Jill) and grandmother to Daria, Elene was loved by the hundreds of students she taught at the Council Rock School (first grade) and French Road Elementary School (third grade). Recipient of the Brighton Parent Teacher Association Lifetime Achievement Award, she was often recognized in public and embraced by many former students in their twenties and thirties, years after she taught them. She taught from her heart. She made sure that each of her students knew they were worthwhile simply because they were who they were. We love you mom, and we will miss you.
